Botox is used by Dr Nicolaidis to help relax your muscles thereby reducing your wrinkles. Botox benefits are well known for obtaining a discretely younger look without surgical procedure. Dr Nicolaidis, board certified Plastic Surgeon, will take to clarify your expectations regarding treatments.
Botox : Objectives
Botox is injected by Dr. Nicolaidis in the muscles triggering severe wrinkles, having the effect of relaxing them, thereby reducing the wrinkles. Botox can be used alone to diminish wrinkle. Fillers, such as Juvéderm, can be used to complement the effects of Botox, filling in deeper wrinkles and irregularities. The most popular fillers are processed hyaluronic acid, which is normally found in the skin and comes as a viscoelestic, transparent gel in a prefilled syringe. Areas commonly treated include frown lines between the eyebrows, nasolabial folds (between the cheeks and mouth) and “Marionette” lines (on the sides of the mouth). Fillers can also be used to augment areas of the face, like the cheeks and lips.
Combined with Juvéderm, Botox offers a kind facelift adaptable to anyone. A facelift using injectables, also known as “soft lift”, ages well, naturally and can be modified over time in order to mold each of your facial characteristic. This lifting without surgical treatment is one of the most popular esthetic procedure without surgery in Montreal, Laval and the area.
During your appointment for Botox treatment, Dr Nicolaidis will take into account your natural expression, and discuss your expectations with regard to the possibilities that Botox treatment can offer. Pictures will be be taken in order to follow the progression of your Botox treatments. Areas commonly treated with Botox, are the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and the mouth. The efficiency of the Botox treatment reaches its full effect after 3 to 4 days and remains in effect for a period of 3 to 6 months.
